    I worked at PRA Health Sciences full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Walked into the job without having to try.

    Cons

    Onboarding was appalling. I was not told a contact name to ask for or even where to turn up, just a start date! I joined a team who were completely unaware I was starting and were pretty uninterested I had joined. I was managed from overseas and was basically just given objectives to meet before the end of the year.
